After a dismal World Cup campaign in Qatar where they crashed out in the group stage, the Red Devils will be hoping for brighter times ahead.

And it will be a new era for Belgium with Domenico Tedesco in charge after he replaced Roberto Martinez.

Sweden, meanwhile, are usually well drilled, but how will they fare against Belgium who are usually rampant during the qualifying segment of a tournament?

To put you in the picture, we have provided a full lowdown and weighed in with a couple of tips for you to ponder ahead of kick-off.

Belgium to clinch game in style

There has been a big shake-up in the Belgium squad in the wake of their horror show at the World Cup.

Eden Hazard and Toby Alderweireld have announced their retirement from international football, and there is a new man in the hotseat.

Tedesco has signalled a change in direction, with Axel Witsel and Dries Mertens the casualties as they were omitted from his squad for the upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers.

Conversely, Sweden continue to stick by their veterans, and there has been a recall for 41-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swedes haven’t had much luck against Belgium in more recent times, and when they last met, Belgium clinched a 1-0 win.

Sweden have failed to win any of the past four meetings, and they have managed just a solitary goal.

Belgium, when in full flow, are mesmerising to watch and they could come flying out of the traps. I have been bold and gone for Belgium to win and Over 3.5 goals, which is available at a juicy 10/1 with William Hill.

Leandro Trossard at the double

Judging by his club form for Arsenal, Leandro Trossard is in a good spot.

Although Trossard will be hoping that he comes through the full 90 minutes unscathed, especially with the title race reaching its climax.

Trossard is one of those tricky players that can pick up decent pockets of space, and while he can finish off flowing counter-attacking moves, he is also good at providing chances, and he registered a hat-trick of assists in the Gunners’ 3-0 win over Fulham earlier this month.

With Romelu Lukaku, you never quite know what you are going to get from him, but Trossard is a more reliable form, and has the midas touch.

I have gone with Trossard to net a double against Sweden, and surprisingly, he’s at a long looking 20/1 with bet365 to do so.
